layers. Since then, its primary goal has been to acquire and improve digital geographic data for statewide mapping
StratMap also maintains comprehensive data standard specifications to ensure consistent, high quality data products
across the State. StratMap personnel at TNRIS work with multiple agencies on cost-share initiatives in order to
provide the State of Texas with best value data products.
How does this work?

- New projects are formed by identifying type of data required, location, specification, budget and timeline for
- Data acquisition, production and independent quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) are awarded to
private geospatial contractors through the Texas Strategic Mapping Contracts.
- After the final data deliverables are accepted, they are placed in the public domain for use by local, regional
and federal government, academia, private industry and the public.
